COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer was brewed in sept. 06 and has since then been aged in oak barrels until bottling on March 22. 2008. The beer is blended for roundness but is still very sour and a little bit acetic. We think our first attempt has been a great success and we will definitely try this again.

KoNrRiI (1413) - rhus, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2016
0.5 bottle. Hazy, dark brown color and a small, off-white head. Aroma is vinous, acetic, yeasty, sour. Taste is obviously sour, once again acetic, a tad fruity. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is even sourer than the rest, introduces strong notes of wood. Overall the beer is definitely too sour to be drinkable; however, I do enjoy feisty brews with flavors full of character. This one certainly falls into this category without offending.

Flaske (batch 687, brygget 20.11.13) fra polets nettbutikk, hjemme: brunsvart med rd undertone. Svrt kort skum. Aroma og (deilig!) smak av sure kirsebr, rips og oe lett rdvinsaktig. Trr, snerpende vins avslutning. Slank for sitt vitamininnhold, s det byr ikke p problemer helle den vellystig over drvelen.

tomekboniek (677) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Butelka. Barwa ciemno brązowa. Brak piany. Aromat kwaśny, winny, dziki. W smaku duża kwaśność wiśniowo-porzeczkowa, praktycznie brak nut beczkowych. Dodatkowo w smaku można doszukać się wyraźnych nut winnych charakterystycznych dla czerwonego wytrawnego wina. Goryczka niska, rozgrzewająca przełyk. Zdecydowanie ciekawe piwo, szkoda, że baczka tak słabo zaznaczona.

metalspice (876) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2015
svart med noen rd/lilla toner., nesten uten skum. Eik, eplekart, aske og lr i duften. Smaken er kompleks med flere lag av surhet. Eik fremtredende ogs i smaken. Noe bitterhet sammen med surheten. Lang ettersmak som ogs inneholder noe karamell. Trr avslutning. Hjdare!

Moebbels (782) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2015
A clear red body with no foam. Nose is sour with sweet bourbony oak notes. Taste is quite sour with a lingering puckering finish. Low carbonation and oily medium palate. The oak comes through nicely but I find that its a bit too sour for my taste.
